Korean streamer QueenMico has, once again, been banned by Twitch but fans have been left in the dark as to why. So, here’s what we know.

QueenMico is a popular Korean streamer on Twitch, who can usually be found in the Just Chatting section, where she’ll talk with her thousands of viewers or dance along to something like Just Dance. 

She currently has close to 210,000 followers on the livestreaming platform, but as of November 16, her fans have been left in the dark as to when she was next planning to go live and give them something to watch.

However, that appears as if it could be some time away as the streamer’s channel has been struck down, again, by the Twitch banhammer without much warning.

Instagram: queenmicoQueenMico can usually be found Just Chatting or dancing on stream.

Fans of the streamer discovered that she had been suspended on Tuesday, November 19 when the TwitchBanned Twitter account confirmed the news in the early hours of the morning. Her channel was struck down for the second time in less than a month. 

Yet, while the account can sometimes give a notice about how long a streamer has been suspended for by Twitch, they didn’t have anything on QueenMico. Instead, it was just a normal post confirming that she had been banned.

While Twitch does not usually comment publicly on the specific reason why a streamer has been banned, they do reveal the reason, and suspension length, to the broadcaster in an email. 

In a lengthy Instagram post, QueenMico stated that she had been banned for three days, but was confused about the exact reasoning, while also claiming that she hasn’t received any money from Twitch subs since March.

Her first post on the matter came as a part of an Instagram story on November 19, where she said that she would see fans on the stream soon. 

It remains to be seen as to exactly why QueenMico has been struck with a ban by Twitch this time around and if it’ll lead to any further problems down the line.

xQc explains why his 7-day Twitch ban was actually a good thing

Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel finally returned to streaming after receiving a massive seven-day ban for his role in a Fall Guys Twitch Rivals stream sniping controversy. However, according to the French Canadian, the ban was actually good for him.

xQc’s return to Twitch was met with some huge numbers, with over 100,000 viewers packed into his chat.

With such a massive audience, Lengyel explained how, while he expected to be criticized for his actions, he was shocked at how some folks didn’t want him to improve or get better.

“Seeing people not wanting you to move or not wanting you to go past the hurdles, it’s almost like they’re living through you,” he explained. “There’s a lot of them.”

xQc’s return stream was pulling in huge numbers.

According to the former Overwatch League pro, even after he apologized for his actions, some people were still attacking him for silly reasons.

“‘Oh no, not good enough of an apology, I hope you get perma-banned,’” he paraphrased of his haters. “I hope nobody gets perma-banned and there are people I really dislike in the content creator space, and I wouldn’t want them to get perma-banned.”

His reasoning for this is because he believes people can come back and do better. But he also addressed people claiming that Twitch was using him as an example.

“I don’t think bigger streamers get preferential treatment. And I think that was a good showcase of it,” he added. “I think, out of all the other instances, I think that was a good showcase of me not getting preferential treatment. If anything, I got the full juicer. Seven-day whole thing and I got clapped.”

Twitch has often been accused of giving some larger streamers better treatment than others on the platform, so this was a refreshing revelation from the Laval-born Lengyel.

“Even if, let’s say, I was being used as an example, and they put me out there as an example of doing a bad thing, that’s fine,” he continued. “That’s fine because when we come back, I can also be an example of doing better.”

Hopefully, xQc can make good on this challenge to himself and actually become better, just as suggested.
